----------- ◊ 能思考的問題 Questions for Reflection:
• 這段經文顯明了世界和教會之間的衝突。你認為此衝突現今明不明顯? 為何這衝突有時候好像不存在? This passage highlights a conflict between the world and the Church. Do you think that conflict is more or less visible today? Why is it that sometimes it seems that the conflict doesn't exist?
• 基督徒要如何同時當 [天堂公民] 和 [世界公民]? How should the Christian live as both a citizen of heaven and a citizen of this world?
• 對現今 [政治議題] 和 [新聞日常報導的問題] 而言，基督徒和非基督徒的看法和反應有差別嗎? 應該有何差別? Is there any difference in the way Christians and unbelievers see and respond to political issues and the typical problems we see in the news today? What should that difference look like?
